"If it's worth doing,
it's worth doing wrong."
Business is hard. But the challenges that make business hard are more than just obstacles - they provide the foundation for building and strengthening a culture that attracts the best people to do the best work.
Worth Doing Wrong covers executable strategies and real world tactics for creating a culture that will help you: Smash you business goals, achieve win-win relationships with your clients, generate buzz in your community, and cultivate a workplace that you and your team members will love.
Arnie often says he’s done it wrong enough to finally get it right. Read his story in Worth Doing Wrong and start creating a culture that rocks your business forward.
You’ve got your hands full with client service problems, internal communication breakdowns, floor production issues, and unexpected turnover.
When your business grows and becomes more profitable, you’ll hire better people, and then you’ll have time for “Culture.” You might even get a ping-pong table and go to casual dress on Fridays, but for now, you’re committed to the “micromanage, I’m right – you're wrong, work harder – not smarter” model that got you here.
You know one thing for sure: “Only really successful companies spend time, effort, and resources on culture.”
I’m here to tell you… you’re right! And I’m going to show you exactly what you can do about it that will absolutely be “Worth Doing Wrong”!
BetterBookClub is not a “my boss read a book and now I have to read it, book club”. BetterBookClub is a simple platform where team members decide what to read, when to read, and how to read while being recognized, encouraged, and rewarded every step of the way.
While wise people learn from their experiences, really wise people learn from the experiences of others. At BetterBookClub, we believe books are the “experiences of others, in waiting for those ready to grow”.
The gift of BetterBookClub is not the achievement of reading any one specific book. The gift is the everlasting benefit of becoming a reader, a leader, and a lifelong learner.
